Attua Aparicio Torinos is a London-based Spanish artist. She graduated from the Royal College of Art, MA Design Products in 2011 and went on to co-found Silo Studio with fellow graduate Oscar Lessing. Silo’s work is a mix of craft and technology, which aims to find new systems of making through adopting a hands-on approach.
Attua also collaborates on a regular basis with her sister the artist Saelia. Attua enjoys working with a wide variety of materials; from plastics, with which she has explored the development for artistic applications and industrial materials, for which she frequently finds applications other than those they have been designed for. But due to environmental concerns she has shifted her focus towards sustainable materials which led to the recent investigation of ceramics and waste glass.
